Captain C. C. Dobson?

Head and shoulders portrait of a smiling man facing front. He is wearing a uniform and a visor cap. The name “Capt Dobson” is written on the negative and is partially visible on the left side of the image. The man is likely C. C. Dobson, captain of a British light cruiser, the H. M. S. Colombo, which visited Portland in August 1929, arriving on August 15.
